...after some days of trying, it looks like the signal was to weak to
get a decode at SQ5BPF. Maybe Paul is in the same situation.|
Time to tell the message, it is 'CFM'.
Now it will be easier to search for the maximum carrier S/N, for the
Apart from the very good results at DK7FC (QRB = 57.6 km), DL0AO (QRB =
283 km) and DL4YHF (QRB = 313 km), i can happily inform that the
message was actually decodable at IK1QFK (QRB = 493 km), which
is the new distance record in the 121 km band and certainly a
first detection from Germany to Italy at 2470 Hz.
The message decode happened even without tweaking the filter and
blanker, i simply took the settings from the last experiment at 2970
Hz, so it is possible to decode the message without knowing it before.
And the SNR is strong enough to even decode a 5 character message.
The processing chain and results are shown in the attachemnt, as usual
Thanks to Renato for the GPS timestamped stream and to everyone else
who attempted to decode the message.
